has there been rips of the video streams?  I'd love to see that Harpua.  I got home just in time for the start of it on the audio stream.

It's good to be back, they are still sounding so awesome

Drowned>asihtos was the definitive highlight for me. They were jamming. 

Forbins sounded good as well, at least the fluttery Trey parts that he usually misses. Such a good song

Harpua was... long...and I really couldn't understand them through the PA so, not sure about that.

Encore was great and unexpected

Best band ever.

Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

Hey Scotty, have you heard that weird echo again since the other night?
You're entitled to your opinion but I'm going to laugh at it.

Harpua was about the theory that the universe is actually donut shaped. Trey and Mike sat down and the four of them had a conversation about it... Seemed fairly scripted. Pretty funny.
Also: there's real science there.

100% scripted. As in they were all reading from scripts.

Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Practically shit my pants this morning when I saw they played Wind Cries Mary. Always been my favorite Hendrix tune.  I was hoping for an Izabella but I'll gladly take this.

And they were all really bad actors.

Page was the best actor, surprisingly followed by Fish.
Trey was OK and Mike was quite bad at reading lines in any convincing way.

I enjoyed the first set. Good flow to the set and Trey's playing through a lot those composed songs was really strong. Not perfect, but like Tela the other night, probably about as good as it gets which I am cool with.

Second set smoked start to finish and I love a good let's-run-this-joke-into-the-ground bit a la the universe/donut story. The unconvincing acting was part of the charm. Sure it went on a little too long and I can see how it would be tough to understand through the PA, but via the stream it was pretty lulzy.

Anyone ever figure out what Mike was playing with during Drowned and ASIHTOS? Looked kinda like a microphone but he was blowing into it like a mini-didgeridoo. He also used it as a slide at once or twice.

Finally, didn't see mention of this so for posterity: during Summertime a shirt got thrown onto the stage. Mike picked it up, smiled, and showed Trey. When they came back out for the encore Trey was wearing it, which said IS THIS STILL LAWN BOY? in the style of LET TREY SING. I lol'd.

I predict little to no work coming from me today or tomorrow but I cannot wait for tomorrow night. Best band ever.

The Jimi cover sounded like a High School band was playing.
So thin and lifeless.
Trey should chat with John Mayer.
